Gurgaon is a leading hotspot of industrialisation and business located in the state of Haryana, India, near the National Capital Region. The capital city of New Delhi is situated about 30 kilometres to the north-east. The city’s burgeoning economy supports an attractive concentration of architectural buildings, cultural landmarks, sustainable residential areas and comprehensive greenery.
A few of the city’s historic attractions include the Sheetla Mata Mandir, a famous temple in the heart of old town, the Sai Ka Angan Temple and Qutub Khan's Tomb. Kingdom of Dreams is one of the most popular theatre venues in the country, and there are also prominent shopping hubs such as Ambience Mall and Gurgaon Central Mall. Popular museums and parks are highlighted by Leisure Valley Park and the Never Enuf Garden Railway.
National Highway 8 and the Gurugram railway station serve as the city’s primary connections to nearby metropolitan areas. The Delhi Metro and the Rapid Metro Gurugram have stations spanning the expanse of the city, and the Indira Gandhi International Airport is the area’s prime aviation hub.
The city of Gurgaon passed under the rule of several different cultures beginning with the Hindus dating back to the earliest times. In the 1800s it fell under British Rule and in the 1940s beneath the Indian State of Punjab until its final establishment under the rule of Haryana in 1966.
